More veggies #3: red lentil curry

Week 3. I really start to be more creative with my food and recipes. I was already thinking of making this dish when I first cooked red lentils. I thought they were going to be similar to black lentils, which are quite firm. But these red ones fell apart and the dish that I made then was somewhat ruined. I researched red lentils for a bit and found that most people use it for red lentil soup and red lentil curry, so this could not miss my More Veggies challenge.

Take it easy

There are some days that I just want no hassle when it comes to cooking (they are very rare but still). On those days I want to cook something simple and quick that does not take a lot of preparation. When I am in such a mood, I have usually been to work and the gym and by the time I sit down with my dinner it will be 21:00 (for me that is quite late). So anything that will need 15 minutes to prep and cook is reasonable for me then.¬†Luckily I became an expert in quick and easy meals when I was living in dorms with 15 other housemates and one induction plate to cook on, since the other one was always broken. It didn’t matter how many times we got it fixed, it continued to break down.

Christmas traditions

Christmas has officially begun. According to the songs the most wonderful time of the year. I, as a foodlover, cannot entirely disagree with this statement. I love Christmas dinners where the entire family and loved ones are sitting around the table eating food that someone spent hours preparing, drinking wine that you normally wouldn’t buy, and watch movies that are only allowed to be watched around this time of year.

Just a little different

The colder months of the year. It is a time where I like to spent time in the kitchen even more than usual. I take more time to prepare meals and put more thought into the dishes that I make. I suppose that has also to do with the fact that right now it is the warmest place in the house.

This dish that I made earlier this week is right up my winter comfort food street. It is simple, reasonably quick to make (30-45 min) and just a little different than usual.

Nutty as a squirrel’s breakfast: Homemade granola

I can look forward to breakfast the moment I go to bed. If I know that a delicious stack of pancakes, full irish breakfast or a simple yoghurt with a fresh fruit salad is waiting for me the moment I wake up of course. Unfortunately, my breakfast usually contains out of simple slices of bread with cheese. I fully blame my laziness for this, which causes me to cherish these extra minutes of sleep instead of extra minutes in the kitchen.

Stepping into the comfort zone

Tired, hungry and cold. Those three things that went through my head  I was cycling home from work on Thursday fantasising about that greasy portion of chips I was going to order as soon as I was home. When I finally came home I realised I would rather have a big plate of steaming comfort food. Semi-healthy comfort food. Anyway it would be better than greasy chips and without a doubt much tastier too
